Mayor Navarre Recommends Consolidating Planning Commission By Area

first_imgMayor Navarre suggests changing Borough code so that Commission membership is apportioned so the number of members form home rule and first class cities more accurately reflects the proportion of the borough population residing inside city limits. Existing seats that don’t comply with the new rule would not be filled when they become vacant. Commissioners from outside city limits would then be appointed at large and represent the seven geographic areas described above, combining Anchor Point/Ninilchik/Clam Gulch/Kasilof. The issue is on tonight’s Borough Assembly meeting agenda, which will be picked up at 6pm in Homer Call Hall, during one of the Assembly’s South Peninsula meetings. Navarre says it would help the Commission complete its work in a timely manner if the number of members were reduced. He says individual commissioners don’t serve the interests of their city, they make decisions based on Borough code and the best outcome for the Borough as a whole.center_img There are five first class or home rule cities in the Borough: Kenai, Soldotna, Seward, Homer, Seldovia. They each currently have a commissioner. Another seven come from the East Peninsula, Southwest Borough, Anchor Point/Ninilchik, Kasilof/Clam Gulch, K Beach, Ridgeway, Sterling, and the Northwest Borough. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The cities of Kenai and Soldotna reacted against an earlier suggesting that the Borough Planning Commission be reduced from 13 members to 11, fearing they would lose their individual representation. Borough Mayor Mike Navarre insists the Commission is too big and is bringing forward another ordinance to consolidate the panel.last_img read more

Man City like player ‘a lot’ – Club dismiss idea of…

first_imgManchester City centre-back Aymeric Laporte’s injury setback has left Pep Guardiola with limited options in the heart of defence. It won’t be a surprise if the Premier League winners decide to bring in a new central defender in the summer.Calciomercato explains the English champions like Inter Milan star Milan Škriniar ‘a lot’. The Etihad club tried to sign the defender in the past, but their attempts didn’t yield any results.Reports coming from England talk about the possibility of a swap deal involving the Slovakia international and João Cancelo.It’s claimed Antonio Conte’s side like the right-back and they would welcome him at the San Siro. However, ‘there is no real exchange proposal’.Embed from Getty ImagesCity paid €55-60m for the Portugal international (Danilo was included as part of the deal), but Inter value Cancelo much lower than what the English champions paid to sign him.In addition to this, Inter would not accept a payment of €20-25m plus Cancelo for Škriniar as they value their defender ‘much more‘.Even though there is no negotiation between two clubs, the assessment of valuations for Cancleo and Škriniar can be an obstacle for any potential swap deal.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoCNN with DBS BankThe New Role Banks Are PlayingCNN with DBS BankUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?
